The causes of motorcycle accidents are often related to a motorist’s claim that he or she “did not see” the motorcycle. Motorcycle accidents often result in severe injury — such as head injury, brain injury and spinal cord injury — to bikers who were clearly following the rules of the road.

Serious injuries can have a lasting and permanent impact on the injured person as well as his or her family. Accommodations may need to be made to the home, long-term care may be needed and future medical treatments may be necessary. At Christensen Law Offices, we provide vigorous advocacy to motorcyclists who have sustained injuries such as head injury, brain injury and spinal cord injury.
Motorcyclists on Las Vegas roads and freeways face a number of risks while riding. Especially during rush hour, cars may not always pay attention to motorcyclists, who can be more difficult to see than an automobile. But when an automobile hits a motorcycle, the results are often far more catastrophic. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation, motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to experience a deadly accident on the road than those in passenger cars.
Motorcycle accidents can be caused by a number of negligent actions or road conditions. A few of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include rain, snow or otherwise poor weather conditions, the failure to use a turn signal by one or both drivers, speeding and ignoring traffic signs, driving drunk or under the influence of drugs, vehicle or road defects or even intentional road rage-prompted actions.
While these risks can affect drivers of all types of vehicles, the lack of protection afforded to motorcyclists can turn an otherwise minor accident into a catastrophe. Motorcyclists should take precautionary measures by always wearing a helmet when on the road, keeping their bikes in good repair and obeying all traffic laws.
If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, you don’t need to fight this battle alone. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney – like those at Christensen Law Offices – can make sure you receive the compensation and justice you deserve for your pain, suffering and financial loss.
